Meg Bear at Talented Apps have a great article called Missing the point, so you don’t have to. It’s about taking ownership of your performance reviews at your work. She makes some very good points.
I’ve been very careluess about my reviews of late and had begun to think that whole thing was a bit of a joke. Meg was woken me up though and I’m going to start to take a much more active role in it.
Hopefully this will result in something at review time, but I’m still a bit sceptical about that.
